Welcome to the forum.

 

Unfortunately there is no back door for BIOS passwords. These passwords are a security and anti-theft mechanism. Your only options are to remember the password or replace the system board.



My comments are mine. I don't work for or speak for Lenovo.
Please do not send me PMs. Ask your question on this forum so that everyone can respond or learn.

Actually, it is typical for manufacturers to have a backdoor mechanism.  You need to write to Lenovo support (not use this forum).  Lenovo, if they have a mechanism, will need absolute proof that you are the owner, so I hope you pre-registered and have documentation that matches that serial number to your name.
